Synopsis:

L – LEGS
Duration: 4 minutes 28 seconds

When one thinks of legs one often thinks of motion. Our legs take us to where we want to go. Our legs, under the control of the mind can be forced to go on and on, beyond even the point of fatigue. Continuing, even when the body would rather just stop and rest. This almost hypnotic close up of a pair of legs walking, so close that the grounds surface is blurred by the perspective chosen, is meant to help us see this mechanical onward movement for what it is, separate from any reason.
